Ready to Join?

You are invited to the opening night of a 6-week exhibition of sculptures by American artist, Matthew Angelo Harrison.

Harrison creates art from discovered African artefacts which he "encapsulates" in resin, plexiglass and industrial modelling clay and further sculpts them with the aid of computer numerical control machines (CNC). His art addresses issues relating to the effects of racism and colonialism as well as issues regarding the American working class and the politics of mass production.

This event also features an "artist talk" by Joshua Amissah, publisher of Black Masculinities.

See you there!
